Amazing community

Love the vibe of the area! Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The air here is so clean, and I love bicycling on the empty large roads. You can relax and chill anywhere since each home is within walking distance. 

Adnam Khan
Peaceful and safe area

Abu Samrah is a peaceful and safe residential area for families who want to protect their children. The area has hardly any crimes or accidents, and each grocery product is produced locally. 

Mohammed Maktoum
Very far from the highway

I don’t like living here because I have to travel to far-off places for even the basic necessities and there is no nightlife there.

Omar Shah

This is the best place for families with kids and pets as the village has large farms, a safe environment and non-toxic food and playing products. 

Ayesha Siddiqui
No way of getting around the village

There is no mode of transport here other than driving your own private vehicle. So, more than half the time, I am searching for rides to the bus station, which can take up to 40 minutes to reach.
